Genious!! :thumbsup: I have thought about doing the same or just buying the one from Mackspw, but I could see everyone racing decoys and getting caught off guard by the birds... "First one around the pintail and back to the teal wins!"

So I'll stick with a jerk cord...
Make em hate it!!

:lol: winner gets to eat the extra granola bar in the blind bag.

Yeah, if it gets to be too much fun it might be a distraction. I'll have to try and control my inner child.

A lot of the places I hunt don't lend well to a jerk cord, to much vegetation.


I was thinking about attaching some fishing line to it and seeing if I could catch a fish as well.

I'm with mysticwolf. I tried it and didn't like it. I went back to the jerk string.

I had a buddy make one last year. If the weight isnt perfectly distributed, you have a dud. It is top heavy and will spin like a wounded duck on the water. He spent a lot of time testing it and made it work perfect. When it gets out of range of the remote, you could be in the boat going to get it. It's definitely fun between duck shoots.
